||In this paper, we use time-frequency analysis for pulse propagation in a linear dispersive medium. TheGaussian and
sinh-Gaussian profiles are used as input ultra-short pulses (0,)in the time domain. E
(0, ω) is the corresponding spectral
profile. This spectral profile is decomposed into several wavelets centered at frequency Ωand the propagation constant (ω)
is expanded to the third order in Taylor series. Using inverse Fourier transform, we obtain numerically the profile of the
pulse simultaneously both in time and frequency by means of Matlab software. We investigate the influence of the third
order dispersion coefficient. Khelladi et al. previously used a Gaussian input pulse to derive time-frequency profile of a
pulse up to second order. Our work is an extension up to third order by using Gaussian input pulse andsinh-Gaussian input
pulse. The result showed that the presence of the third order dispersion term exhibits broadening of the pulse, and the sinh-Gaussian pulse undergoes broadening at much slower rate in comparison to Gaussian pulse.
